    Palette’s Modular Harware Controls Give You Sliders, Buttons And Knobs For Creative Software

    Waterloo-based startup Palette is building a moddable hardware controller for your computer that can turn into a complete mixing board, should you need one. It’s a hand accessory that fits the description of something I’ve actually been looking around for based on the fact that editing video without some sliders for fine-tune scrubbing is a pain, and it’s on Kickstarter now.

    LittleSnapper Becomes Ember As Realmac Software Overhauls Its Mac App For Digital Creatives

    Ember is a new tool available today on the Mac App Store for collecting inspirational digital bits and pieces from websites, images, apps or anything else. It’s not entirely new, however – Ember was once LittleSnapper, popular in its own right, but with a somewhat limited reputation as an excellent advanced screenshotting tool. Brighton’s Realmac Software is refocusing… Read More

  • Hands On With The Creative Tactic 3D Omega

    This console headset, announced at CES this year, is finally available for purchase. It offers 3D sound in a pair of high-end headphones along with a wireless dongle that sits behind the console and is nearly invisible. We had a few seconds with the headset today and they looked pretty solid, an important consideration when you’re talking about something that will eventually end up under… Read More

  • Hands-On With The Creative ZEN Style M300


    The ZEN Style M300 is a tiny MP3 player with a few tricks up its sleeve. Starting at a mere $40, these tiny, colored devices feature Bluetooth connectivity, a MicroSD slot, and a small color screen. A different device the M100, has all the features of the M300 except the FM radio. The 4GB 300M costs $49 while the 100M costs $40. At a fraction of the cost of any similar iPod, these little… Read More

  • Creative ZiiO 10 Tablet Hits The FCC

    The Creative ZiiO 10 isn’t exactly a secret. The Creative UK store posted its product page a few weeks ago, but the simple fact that the device is sitting with the kind folk at the FCC seems to state that a US release is immanent. Everything is available in the FCC docs: external photos, internal photos, user manuals, nearly everything but a price sheet. Read More

  • Review: Creative ZiiSound D5 and D200 Wireless Speakers

    I first got the Creative D5 and D200 speakers way back in June and have just gotten around to cracking them open and trying them out. It’s hard to write about a 2.0 speaker set simply because it’s not extremely super-exciting on the surface. However, if you’re looking for a good, wireless speaker system for the bedroom or kitchen, these are two kids that are worth looking… Read More

  • Hands-on with Creative's ZiiSound D5 and D200 Bluetooth speakers


    I’ve been following Creative for so long I feel like they’re old friends to me. I’ve been impressed over the years with their MP3 player line but they, like so many audio manufacturers, have seen the writing on the wall and the future isn’t in making the MP3 players – it’s in making the stuff that works with MP3 players. To wit: here we present the Zii Sound… Read More

  • World of Warcraft headset available for purchase

    While we reviewed it a few weeks ago, Creative’s World of Warcraft headset hasn’t been available for purchase until today. Time to get your geek on! Read More

  • Review: Creative World of Warcraft headset

    Short Version: Fresh from the box, Creative’s World of Warcraft, is here! They were designed for WoW players and their performance definitely reflects that. While a tad bulky, they don’t feel heavy.
    Pros
    • Very Comfortable
    • Hard to hear outside the headphones
    • Wireless Mic works well. Does not get in the way.
    • Driver allows deep customization of audio to serve your… Read More

  • World of Warcraft headphones get pricing, details

    Creative is finally giving up some details on the World of Warcraft headset that they showed off at BlizzCon and CES. The price is a bit higher then we’d all like, with an MSRP of $159.99 for the wireless version, and $119.99 for the wired version. They do look cool though, I like the choice between the Horde and Alliance artwork lit up on the sides. Read More

  • And now Creative is jumping into e-book readers and tablets and funcookers and such

    We’re withholding judgment on the Zii platform until somebody really gets a chance to use it in a final form (you can see video of it running Android here), but little did we know that Creative has more planned for the vaguely-defined media platform than PMPs. They’ve just announced that we can expect a sort of media player/e-book reader with the Zii branding sometime…… Read More

  • Creative heats up the race for second with the the ZEN X-Fi2

    Creative is back with another PMP. The ZEN X-Fi2 is rocking everything we like to see in a player too: 3-inch touchscreen, built-in mic, TV-out, FM radio, RSS reader, and a microSD card slot for further storage above the 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB SSD options. Plus, at $130, $180, and $230, they aren’t priced too bad either. We just wish that Android was loaded onto this player like in the… Read More

  • Look, Batman, there's a World of Warcraft headset from Creative coming right at us!


    This could be the most important week in the history of Creation. Blizzcon starts on Friday—once again Blizzard reminded me in an e-mail that I can purchase the Web stream or DirecTV pay-per-view for $40—and we’re sure to be hanging on the company’s every word re: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Today’s hot news is that Creative will release a World of… Read More

  • Creative's Zii devices to be semi-Opera-powered?

    Creative’s uber-device, the Zii, is looking to be a firecracker. With dual cameras, lots of space inside, and Android compatibility as well as Creative’s Plaszma OS, it looks like it may out-Touch the Touch. Not only this, but it’s been revealed that the Zii also will be the first to run a specialized version of Opera. I trust Opera to go all in with a mobile browser like this… Read More

  • Videos: More info on the Creative Zii Android project

    Creative made a small splash the other day when the Zii project broke cover. It very well could be the first, real iPod touch competitor thanks to Android and impressive hardware. Here’s two more videos showing off the Zii. The one above is an impressive game demo that demos the accelerometer and the one after the break gets into the nitty-gritty about the hardware. Read More

  • Zii Plaszma: A case study in WTF

    Creative makes MP3 players. They do a good job. I like Creative. Good people over there. A good company. But I got this email today describing Creative’s plans with the new Zii handheld and I was immediately struck by a question: What the hell is this Plaszma Zii StemCell garbage? Read More
